We’ve been so lucky to play at some beautiful weddings this year and Jess & Oliver’s was a beautiful day and a great way to start the August weddings!
Jess e-mailed us way back in 2014 and booked us for her wedding at the Mytton & Mermaid, her and Oliver asked for us to play throughout their drinks reception and then 2 x 45 min sets for their early evening entertainment ending with their first dance.
We arrived early to the venue as we wanted to make sure we got there before the guests arrived for their drinks reception, we set up in the Mytton & Mermaids dinning room which is a little tight on space but with our super small PA system we can fit into any small space!
We played 2 x 45 min sets over their wedding breakfast starting with the beautiful “At Last” as the couple entered the room, we played some laid back and romantic songs as the guests enjoyed their afternoon tea. The guests were great singing a long and we ended just as the couples speeches started.
After the speeches Dan and I moved our PA outside to the venues pretty courtyard area where the guests were enjoying their coffees and mints, Jess & Oliver asked us to pick the songs we played throughout the night and asked us to play more upbeat songs to entertain the guests in the evening.
This always works really well in the evening as guests are relaxed after their food and evening guests are arriving, greeting the bride and groom. We play our more laid back set first and then a more upbeat set to end Uptown Funk, Mercy & Forget you being some of their favourites.
As the sun was setting we packed up one last time and moved inside to play the couples first dance, the couple had chosen “Thinking Out Loud” by Ed Sheeran a beautiful way to end our day!
